We sell new and used books, local artwork, games, and a few quality art supplies.

Need to make space on your bookcase?

Bring us your gently used books and we’ll give you a discount on your next purchase! We also have a “no trash” policy. If we cannot use a book, we either donate it to the library or recycle it depending on the condition. Your books will not end up in the garbage. 


Art Club:

 Need an excuse to work on your art? Bring your current project to How Novel and spend a couple hours socializing while you add to your masterpiece! No lessons, per se, but your fellow artists would be more than happy to share tips of the trade. How Novel has supplies for anyone who needs a starter kit. Make time for yourself and your creative expression from 3-5PM on the second Saturday of the month.

This weekend with the Story Lorry

Although there’s still a lot of building to do, this weekend Nikki was able to contribute some work. We’re slowly-but-surely chipping away! So excited to get some shelves installed next!

Gutting the Story Lorry

I removed cabinet doors and drawers… And then Marlow went wild tearing out cabinets, counters, shower, and fridge! I don’t know if I could’ve done all this work without him! Next up, building shelves (another Marlow job) and tiles (my project!) Stay tuned!
